Park City was chosen as the host destination for the United States Olympic Committee at the 2017 Team USA Media Summit. Held on September 24-27, 2017 at Canyons Village in Park City, Utah, the Summit provides journalists from all over the world with access to over 100 hopeful U.S. Olympic athletes in all winter sports leading up to the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in PyeongChang.
“We’re thrilled to announce that the 2017 Team USA Media Summit is headed back to beautiful Park City, the home and training center for so many of our Team USA athletes, and one of the epicenters of winter sports in the United States.The event will provide U.S. athletes with the opportunity to showcase their personalities and share their Olympic and Paralympic journeys with the hundreds of journalists in attendance - media who are instrumental players in the Olympic and Paralympic movements - through their in-depth coverage and incredible storytelling. We’re looking forward to another productive and spirited Media Summit.”
The Olympics are in our state’s heritage. The 2002 Winter Olympic Games were held in Salt Lake City, Utah and brought about a new wave of recognition for our destination. Park City’s Utah Olympic Park was built for the Games and still serves a training center for Olympic athletes. In 2002 the park hosted the bobsleigh, skeleton, luge, ski jumping and Nordic combined events.
Located just four miles from historic Main Street, Canyons Village showcases some of Park City’s world-class developments, quaint shops and slope-hugging lodging such as the Grand Summit Hotel and the Silverado Lodge—it offers a distinctive experience for all who visit.
